california, austin, oregon, where sustainability is part of the real culture and the thread of the way people live. when you look at the spark and you look at what the performance of a car is, we haven't announced the final range because we're not done certifying it but it will be one of the largest range vehicles and torque is more than a ferrari. >> but the skeptic will look at this and say not that you're supposed to comment on the leaf from a competitor standpoint but you look at the leaf and others and people say is there a market for electric vehicles in the u.s.? >> i think we're doing about 3,000 volts here every month. and that's been growing here pretty steadily. i think if you look at the economy and what we've been through over the last few years and affordability of that, it's hard to know exactly what those markets really are going to be when we get equalization here from a growth standpoint in the economy. the bottom line is that we can save a lot of fuel consumption. we have a place like california and los angeles in an urban environment where spark makes a huge amount of sens
their hands on the new ipad mini. john fort is outside an apple store in california with a surprising story. john. >> reporter: marimaria, it's sta wait, though. that line in new york got longer at the fifth avenue store. more than 800 people when the doors opened. hard to gauge exactly what that means, though. a number of other new york stores were closed, of course, in the south of manhattan because of hurricane sandy cleanup. now, here in palo alto, still plenty of back ipad minis in stock. i took a look at the number of reservation cards. looks like there are well over 50 cards. they say they have 16, 32, and 43 gigabyte models in stock. it just got really crowded. lots of people coming in and getting minis. gene muenster of piper jaffray estimates over 1 million. maybe they'll put out a number next week. i haven't heard any word on that either way. >> all right, john. thanks so much. the ipad may be getting smaller, but the tablet space is becoming a big battleground. hewlett-packard no doubt one of the key players in the space. todd bradley joins me now to talk about that. thank you f
ballot initiatives. >> in california alone a handful of donors have spenlt more than $350 million on stat ballot initiative. much of the money comes from a single family, the monger's. daughter molly monger has spend more than $40 million. her more conservative brother has spent $36 million on a measure to make it harder for unions to raise political money. the hedgefund chief spent more than $25 million to close a tax loop hole for out of state companies. many say they are just using their money for broader public good. at least one ballot backer has his own fortunes in mind. he spent more than $30 million to oppose a new bridge. turns out he has his own toll bridge that collects tens of millions of dollars a year. we will see whether all of this ballot money was a waste or not. we will know tonight or tomorrow morning. >> these numbers are mind boggling. thank you so much. for investors how are they positioning themselves for an obama or romney victory? we will break it down now. guys, thanks for joining us. jeff, what will you do tomorrow if mitt romney wins? >> like many of us i'm wat

it is here and if you're watching us in california, the midwest, you probably don't get it. i think when you think about it, this may in fact if he goes ahead with this, be the biggest disaster of his entire 12 years. >> you're talking about draining the city of resources that could be used elsewhere. explain the soul train screen behind you at your desk. >> that was the passing of don cornielias, somebody helped me put that up there and it's still up there. >> a nice tribute to an amazing man. that means we're going to watch you dance in the future. let's get a quick flash from bertha coombs. >> conway, the truck leasing company says it's too early to tell, but pre sandy on monday and tuesday, their volumes were down significantly and that is going to have an impact. 9 to 10% compared to same days in october last year. they're not sure how much they might see a pick-up following sandy as we see things start to pick-up and extra supplies start to come in. a lot of companies trying to sort that out. >> yes, gm saying they're still trying to quantify how sandy may have affected the month. rick
leans to the left a little? >> he's no longer here. >> he's there in presence. you're in california. is there any businesses left at all in that state? >> there are quite a few. go to silicon valley, los angeles, san francisco. this is still the engine of innovation for the u.s. economy. >> they're making it tough on you. >> we could be doing better, that's true. >> so neel, when you say that this does lift some immediate uncertainty but you're not sure what it means beyond that, what do you think the market does between now and the end of the year, let's say? maybe not this week but between now and the end of the year under a reelected president obama or under a newly elected mitt romney? >> well, i think under reelected president obama, i would expect to see volatility increase especially as it relates around the fiscal cliff. we need to see them come together, divided government needs to work together. they have not worked together very well over the past couple years so the markets will take a wait and see approach and there's a good chance there will be fighting and brinkmanshi
. the opening bell is up in three minutes. for over 60,000 california foster children, the holidays can be an especially difficult time. everything's different now. sometimes i feel all alone. christmas used to be my favorite. i just don't expect anything. what if santa can't find me? to help, sleep train is holding a secret santa toy drive. bring your gift to any sleep train, and help keep the spirit of the holidays alive. not everyone can be a foster parent, but anyone can help a foster child. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. >>> just saw opening bell for monday, november 5th here at the big board. a military veteran forum for human resources being held. the food bank for new york city so obviously
companies. i see so many small businesses, i was out in california yesterday, i must have met in four days with eight of our companies, and i asked every one of them, what impact does this have? what difference is it going to make whether romney wins or obama? i honestly believe it's almost a neutral element in terms of the young companies. when they are growing and they are excited and their product is being taken up, and most of them that i'm dealing with are internet or wireless based, it's an environment you don't stop hiring. in fact they have big open to buys. >> so what does affect those companies? what are they looking at beyond their own home base? >> i think the general environment will have an impact. i think that the tone of the top will have an impact. i think my personal feeling, the biggest impact for the kind of companies i'm in are what happens for advertising expenditures. i think advertising and advertising -- >> you talked about immigration policy as well. >> sorry, thank you, thank you. immigration policy is getting the kind of people, everyone is frustrated with the i
to set up offices in chicago, first of all, or california, and i don't know who are the people who are going to staff and man those offices to actually trade on behalf of somebody, it's not clear to me how this works. it may very well be that when you have a massive superstorm the size of sandy that knocks out an entire coast or region that it's almost impossible to have true contingency planning. >> two things. good point. first of all, you do need to have some senior people who aren't necessarily located in the proximity of devastation. yes, you do need some senior people but in this circumstance, this is one of the things we learned, andrew, is that since they weren't sure the large traders weren't sure about whether or not they could enter the orders into the new york stock exchange, they actually sent people to archipelago to try to work on the computers, in the middle of this storm, so just a really sort of a cluster and hopefully we can do better in the future. >> what happened to your own next -- isn't this a transatlantic company that has platforms on both sides of the oce
